You know, you really do not have a choice if you want to lose weight, you need to exercise for weight loss. There is no pill that is going to do it for you. You have to get up off of your duff and get moving. I know you think you have tried everything under the sun to try to lose weight but what about good, old fashioned exercise? Quit poking it with a stick and get yourself moving.
Depending on how much weight you need to lose, 30 minutes three times a week just won’t get it either. You need to exercise for weight loss 1-2 hours per day everyday of the week to see some significant results. Obviously yoou will probably have to work up to this level but it is possible so stop groaning, you can do this.
I have got a few tips for you to keep in mind and may just make your work outs easier:
1. Try to find a friend to work out with you. It is a proven fact that working out with someone makes it easier to stick to and lends a little competitiveness to your work outs. Not to mention that there will be some peer pressure to deal with. You will feel the pressure to perform and not let each other down or let each other slack off and not work hard.
2. You might want to pay out some extra cash right at the beginning and work with a trainer to establish a good routine, even if you are working out with someone. I do not care if you have worked out before and think you know what you are doing. Machines have evolved over the years and there may be some changes you need to be made aware of. Working with someone may just give you the extra motivation you need to keep working out and stop making excuses.
3. Do not stick with one single exercise or piece of equipment. Believe it or not your body can get used to anything. The food you eat as well as the piece of exercise equipment you use the most. When you give your body the smae thing day in and day out and it does get used to it then it basically stops responding in a positive way and you weight loss will plateau at this time. Mix things up so you keep your body guessing all the time.
4. Cardio training is good to get used to doing but it is not the most essential part of your work out. Weight training is more essential than cardio. When weight training, make sure you keep each and every rep slow and controlled. Count to seven with the effort and then again when moving back to your starting position. Slow and controlled is the way to go.
So there you go, just a few exercise for weight loss tips that will get you and keep you moving in the right direction.
